Central Florida Lawyer Who Admitted To Pilfering Over $2.7 Million From Clients Also Screwed Over Now-Estranged Hubby By Forging His Signature On $900K Mortgage Secured By Marital Home; Judge Declares Lien Invalid

In Sanford, Florida, the Orlando Sentinel reports:
  • A Sanford judge has ruled that a disbarred Longwood attorney who has admitted cheating clients out of $2.7 million also victimized her husband.

    Julie Kronhaus, 52, pleaded guilty last [month] in federal court to wire fraud and bank fraud. She’s to be sentenced in April.

    In a different court — state circuit court in Sanford — another judge signed an order last [month], ruling that Kronhaus also forged her husband’s signature.

    Her estranged husband, cardiologist Kenneth Kronhaus, sued her last year, accusing her of forging his name on a mortgage deed and mortgage note that gave two of her former clients an interest in the Kronhaus’ $900,000 home in one of Seminole County’s most prestigious gated communities, Alaqua.

    Circuit Judge Jessica Recksiedler ruled that the mortgage deed and note were both invalid because of the forgeries.
